of the ambassador in benghazi and three other americans there. it appears to be clearly an assassination. >> the arab spring was never about democracy. we have a lot of bbc journalists reporting and talking to a few english-speaking, well groomed professional egyptians and then reading their facebook. they extrapolated from that very small example to say 100 billion egyptians wanted democracy. 100 billion egyptians wanted to get out from under hosey hosni mubarak and also wanted to assert their religious identity. the arab spring was an entire construction of mrs. clinton's mind and never really existed in the sense it was described. lou: secretary clinton saying that the ambassador has a loss to the arab spring. what is your reaction to those words and we have shared with the audience tonight? >> i think that clinton may know more about the middle east and jay carney, but not much. mrs. clinton has blood on her hands everywhere. they stuck the ambassador and his team into the middle of a city without guards and the city provided more suicide bombers in iraq than any country except for s

in the consulate in benghazi in eastern libya, there is a cross border aspect to this story that is making right now in tunis. and another aspect of the story tunisia, like other countries are being hard-hit by the united states to stop the radicalism we see here in wake of the arab spring. they told me they did not see the tunisia step between the protests of the islamist and protestors the other friday that did knowledge damage to the u.s. embassy, and its compound and a school nearby where about a hundred american kids were staying until about two hours before the protest. there with us a demand coming from the americans that the tunisia act against these radicals. and there was a taunt in that too. tunisia looking to america to fork over half a billion dollars in needed money over the next year to payoff loans in this economy. there is a bit of a taunt there too by the united states that, hey you come through there and then maybe we can come through with this. back to the breaking news, we'll get a hard confirm when we get our crew on the ground seeing this. about a thousand security surroun
for the state department and for her country. we've seen that heavy assault on our post in benghazi that took the lives of those brave men. we've seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful internet video that we have nothing to do with. it is hard for the american people to make sense of that because it is senseless and it is totally unacceptable. the people of egypt, libya, yemen and tunisia did not trade the tyranny of the tape trader for the tyranny of a mob. reasonable people and responsible leaders in these countries need to do everything they can to restore security and hold accountable those behind these violent acts. and we will, under the president's leadership, keep taking steps to protect our personnel around the world. there will be more difficult days ahead, but it is important that we don't lose sight of the fundamental facts that america must keep leading the world. we owe it to those four men to continue the long, hard work of diplomacy. i am enormously proud of the men and women of the state department. i am proud of all those across our government, c
.s. ambassador was killed in benghazi. mike baker joins us, former covert operations officer with the cia, head of diligence to moguls to carry from. let me start with a question, if i can, about security. some people have brought up the fact, was there as much security as they needed to be at some of these indices from what you've seen of the last couple of days to make >> again, hindsight, it's terrific. it would have been wise to have beefed up security. in all honesty in libya where we know associates are operating, where there are tremendous amounts of hardware, weaponry on the streets so from the revolution when they are resort opened up and pilfered. just a general operating in firming, still trying to form a government. they should have been significantly more security on the ground. at this point after such a sad event, you know, you have to review, look. we have to prevent this in the future. charles: the sow will be talking about. after we talk about the response to want to get to as low. your other area of expertise to my intelligence and what we should have known about this, of tal
to the consulate in libya killing four people including the u.s. ambassador to libya. the violence in benghazi erupting after a film produced by a developer. it is a movie not flattering to the religion. all of this horror and ugliness over a movie that without these horrible scenes most of us would never have heard of let alone watched. i return to a discussion we had earlier. why do we remain so dependent on middle eastern oil. a perceived insult in a small film spurs all of this and we depend on them for energy in this country. if this is not a wakeup call i don't know what is. why not allow the keystone pipeline with canada which is our friend and would create more domestic oil or how about an energy policy which requires natural gas. all of this doesn't mean we can't still pursue clean energy ideas? isn't that better than depending on a region that does this because of a movie? it seems to me this is where policy and businesses can work together. it is not happening and the situation has become deadly. it may not be the last time. before we take a look at the day on wall street today wher
.s. consulate in benghazi tuesday. libya said it has arrested four suspects and is interrogating more. ambassador chris stevens and three other americans were killed in the attack. and now we're getting a grim first look at what the mob left behind. witnesses say the americans left bloody hand prints on the wall, a fire gutted the complex and vandals trashed everything that didn't burn. tonight, u.s. embassies all over the world lowered their flags to half-staff. the pentagon deployed two u.s. warships off the coast of libya and the president is promising to bring the killers to justice. >> i want people around the world to hear me, to all those who would do us harm, no act of terror will go unpunished. it will not dim the light of the values that we proudly present to the rest of the world. no act of violence shakes the resolve of the united states of america. >>> coming up, turns out there is a superpower greater than the ability to fly and today fed chairman ben bernanke reminds us what it is as the federal reserve moves in a dramatic way to shore up and accelerate a slow recovery
fears for his life. following an investigation into the killings at the u.s. embassy in benghazi, there are reports of four people have been arrested. the libyan prime minister has said, expect more arrests. >> we'll keep an eye on it. thanks very much. >>> we're going to turn to the big economic news here at home. ben bernanke announcing dramatic new moves to shore up the economy. bianna golodryga with more on that. start out by explaining what the fed is doing. >> reporter: the fed announced an aggressive program to buy back about $40 billion of mortgage-backed securities every, single month. what does that mean? you saw huge response in the stock market. your 401(k) is going to bounce because of that. interest rates remain low, near zero, through 2015. that will inspire people to go out and buy homes. anything to retrigger the economy of growth. >> and investing, as well. when i spoke to mitt romney, he's been critical of ben bernanke. he won't reappoint him if he is elected president. he says this won't work. and the fed has tried stimulus bere. >> reporter: they tried this t
in the assassination of our ambassador in benghazi is quite significant because it rips a hole in the administration argument that the war on terror is over. it is very much in force as we can see. stuart: last time mitt romney said anything about this was placed appearance when he was responding to the semi apology the embassy of cairo put out. the response to what mitt romney said was from the media that this -- is this now a new opportunity for mitt romney to get into this issue? >> i think it is. this shows that our commander-in-chief not only is weak and indecisive but fundamentally misunderstands what is going on in the middle east and while people are focused on the economy the potential danger to the united states over the next four years is real. stuart: is it right for a challenger in a presidential election to go after the incumbent president on foreign policy six weeks to the election? >> absolutely. if you go back to 1944 and look at republican criticism of franklin roosevelt's handling of the war until then that is real criticism of a critical foreign policy. remember the war in vietna
